A little bit about men’s manicure
The culture of male self-care was formed in 1830 in France. The then-reigning King Louis Philippe 1 suddenly had a very annoying burr. Not the first doctor was able to cope with it’s removal.
Inventive Dr. Zittz was able to make a nail care kit, which included a suede nail file, powder and an orange stick, borrowed from dentists. Since then, such sets have become indispensable attributes of self-care, and orange sticks are still an integral part of any manicure.
At present, for many men well-groomed hands and feet are a matter of honor.
Men's manicure and pedicure usually do not imply colored or glossy coatings. Most often, it is performed without using varnish or using a matte finish and polishing nails.
For representatives of prestigious professions, where the appearance should be presentable (bank employees, businessmen, croupiers, politicians, show business figures, etc.), manicure is as important an integral part of the image as a stylish suit or a good hairstyle.
Men's manicure not only gives a well-groomed and aesthetic appearance, but also helps to maintain the health of the nail plate and is an integral part of hygiene.
